We are not able to review your application prior to submission.
To check to see if your degree will be accepted, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need to list the school, year and the type of degree.
We accept students who have degrees in other disciplines. However, they must still have core courses appropriate for graduate work in mining, including three semesters of calculus (for some emphasis areas differential equations is required), one or two semesters of physics (depending on the emphasis area), statics (for some emphasis areas strength of materials and mechanics of fluids), and a basic understanding of geologic principles before applying to graduate school.
As long as the test is taken before the deadline, then you are OK. Please put a memo in with your other application material stating the date the test was taken (or will be given). If you are given unofficial scores on the day that you take the test, please send them to our department via email at email@example.com to include in your application file until the official scores are received.
